Women in the North is a networking and mentoring group for female staff on the Launceston campuses.

The group aims share information about what different areas and individuals within the University do and how this all fits into the overall framework of the University. Women in the North provides the opportunity for northern staff members to build their professional network and to meet colleagues from different areas within the University.  Through this relationship building, Women in the North members increase their Utas network and have an increased opportunity for collaboration across the northern campuses.

At each meeting, one or two representatives from the group will lead the meeting by providing information about their role at the University, leading the discussion for around 10 minutes each.  Each presenter will also touch on their career pathway.

On Wednesday 4 July, hear from:

  • Professor Sue Kilpatrick, Director, Centre for University Partnerships
  • Becky Shrimpton, Head of Marketing & Communication Section, Australian Maritime College

 This will be followed by informal networking. Please bring your own lunch.


The dates of future meetings in 2012 are:

  • Friday 3 August
  • Wednesday 5 September
  • Friday 5 October
  • Wednesday 7 November
  • Friday 7 December

All meetings are held in Meeting Room 1 (next to Degrees).  ALL WELCOME!


Convenor: Belinda Brock
